SRH spinners once again came to the party as they dealt blows at regular intervals with Shakib Al Hasan (2/36) and Rashid Khan (1/31) kept the scoring under check. The RCB's lost the match by 5 runs, losing 2 wickets in the last two bowls of last over.

In Hyderabad: Matches: 5, Sunrisers Hyderabad won: 4, Royal Challengers Bangalore won: 1. While on the other hand, the campaign has nearly ended for RCB as even if they win remaining all their matches, they will finish with 14 points which won't be enough for the qualification.

Virat and AB de Villiers failed to deliver against CSK and apart from Parthiv's 50 at the top and Tim Southee's intent at the end of the innings, RCB batting collapsed.

Toss update: Virat Kohli, captain of RCB, has won the toss and opted to field first. Shakib Al Hasan took two wickets to be the pick of the bowlers for SRH. They are on a four-match winning streak. RCB's skipper moved to 39 before he got tangled up and a leading edge flew to short third-man where Pathan stuck one hand up and the ball miraculously stuck.

Williamson is averaging 51.25 with the bat while captaining the Sunrisers in 2018 and is ranked second for most runs (410) scored in this season's competition - behind only Ambati Rayudu (423) of the Chennai Super Kings.

The SRH's batting department, which had appeared to be inconsistent, is also doing good of late as they successfully chased a target of 164 against Delhi. This, despite two dropped catches, including one of Virat Kohli.

Kane Williamson who has gone about amassing 410 runs nearly unnoticed is the "Batsman of the Match" for his match winning 56 off just 39 deliveries.

There is no doubt that the clear favourites for today's fixture are the home team. Mandeep Singh stuck around for a 21-run cameo and Colin de Grandhomme struck a fine 33 runs. Grandhom (8), Mandeep (10) is present at the crease. I thought this was a tough wicket. We couldn't capitalise on the start the bowlers gave us. If you have strong characters in this team, you're always going to do well. With good performances in nearly all the games they've played, the team is still guilty of not getting the job done at the end of the day.

One such team is the Mumbai Indians who were at a very bad stage once with just win and way too many losses.
